Complainant Name:
Ben Chapman MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Telegraph

Complaint:

Ben Chapman, MP for Wirral South, complained that an article was inaccurate in stating that he had lodged "numerous parliamentary questions about Sino-British trade" since making a trip to China in 2008 (a trip made in his capacity as chairman of the all-party Parliamentary China Group - which promotes engagement between British and Chinese parliamentarians on a range of issues such as science and technology, the environment, education, industry and commerce and human rights - and partly funded by the Jiangsu Provincial People's Congress). Mr Chapman said he had certainly lodged a number of questions about China but only one could possibly be interpreted as relating to trade issues.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper agreed to remove the reference from the online version of the report.

Report: 80
